Clive Owen has given his most candid interview to date about his split from ex-wife Amanda.

The Our Yorkshire Farm stars confirmed last summer that they were separating and speaking on Thursday’s Lorraine, Clive insisted he doesn’t want sympathy from fans of the show.  

The couple found fame on the Channel 5 programme, which follows them and their family navigating life at Ravensear, near Richmond in North Yorkshire.

Amanda, 48, and Clive, 68, were married for 22 years and share nine children.

Speaking to Christine Lampard this week, Clive said: ‘One of the things I hear is people saying, “poor Clive”. And I feel that isn’t right. We filmed Yorkshire Farm, people loved it.’

He went on: ‘[Filming the show] we had this opportunity to make it more secure as a family.

‘That was what drove her. It was amazing and successful, but I handled it very badly. It was such a change in our lives and I sadly made a right mess of things.’

Clive added: ‘I had a massive part to play in our relationship ending. When all this is going on, here I am ranting and raving and drinking and carrying on. 

‘We were all committed to this thing but it seemed to eat away at me and I handled it badly. I should have been supportive and I was doing the opposite.’

Earlier this year, Amanda revealed she and Clive still work together and said things are now easier since their split.

‘People assume that because I’m separated from my husband, Clive, things are harder, but in fact it’s the opposite,’ she shared.

Amanda went on to explain: ‘We have two farms that are basically next door to each other, so it’s close enough for it to be useful, but far enough for us to have space.’

She continued to The Times: ‘Whatever our personal situation, there’s a farm to run and nine children to look after so we’re just working together, making it happen.’
